How in the world is this card supposed to work? It says to use it "after the battle" and will effect all enemy units in the battlefield.

Since there will be no mixed forces left after a battle, I am unsure what section of the board is considered the "battlefield."

If anybody has a clue, please pass one along.

Thanks

I have not played the board game but I do play the game online. This sounds like the Diseased Ghouls. These are glowing green ghouls that when they are killed emit a green cloud that then inflicts a rather nasty disease that's fatal on anyone close by who isn't cured rather quickly. Not sure if that answers your question but that is what I think it is trying to replicate.

Not that I play this game, or ever will ... but if I fell in battle, I would hope the enemy would choke on my rotting corpse.

It seems like a card that is supposed to be used as an act of vengeance but I was under the impression that you had to have a unit in a battle to be able to play an action card.

I guess that my impression of the card is that it is only of use when you survive/win a battle and that the effects only target the enemy units in the flanks. Otherwise I can't quite figure this.

I think you're incorrect. I believe it's for when you lose and you use it on the enemy. That would replicate the effect in the computer game.

My mistake was thinking that a player had to have a surviving unit in a battle to play a card. Looking more closely at the rules I see that this is not the case... so, yep, it does look like a card that can be used for vengeance, etc.

Cool.
